in response to reader comment: Was it coming for the French

Dr. Pipes,
In my reply to Faqi Hussain two of our ideas are confirmed: Islam IS a religion of TWO peoples. The first is for the ignorant (glorified by the Imans and clergy for self power) which accepts following... Muhammad... and the second for the educated (those who read) following the ideals of Islam ( not following Muhammad's example of his life), but following a life-style of understanding which developed from the hearts of those who saw a life of servitude to G-d as beneficial for themselves and others.

As there is a good side and bad side of any human institution, the bad side of Islam is enforced by the power hungry Clergy of Islam who will see to the idea of instilling fear in the faithful plus stressing the base instincts of any people by legitimizing the evils of our hearts to emerge as being good ...as done for Hitler,or the Emperor, or some god. The World War II Japanese soldiers still feel that they had not done any wrong to others, as all others were non-human, as today's kefars are to the Muslims. Same with the Nazis who still feel the same and other religions still do in defending the Faith. Justification by nationalism, race or religion is old news and is still here today. Education and challenge is needed to unseat the Mullahs or racists of today to make a more peaceful world. France's Muslims are all connected to only Arab TV ,it seems.

In educating the youth of the world, Islam should be taught as a good thing but practiced by many as a bad thing. The same thing could be said for Race or Nationalism or whatever else is harming the world society. More equal news reporting is needed if we are to survive. Most USA news media is bias also as is mostly everything else. This has to be regulated in a form of equal time and understanding . Bias-controlled USA media as well as all other foreign medias should not be protected as Freedom of Speech since one-sided bigotry IS non-Freedom of Speech but the main cause of all wars,past and present...or in simpler terms :propaganda by the Powerful to the Powerless for the result of continuing Power for only the Powerful! .Until we have a world system of free rights of expression in all of life's institutions without punishment, we shall have wars .

Maybe Dr. Pipe's Site will be the inspiration for all of mankind to come together and truly see each other as fellow human beings worthy of life and love, then we shall be free to worship and become as one .in the world's community.
Submitting....
